"LADIZ_1-5"

 

"LADIZ_alps" - the series was made in the high mountains of Tirol. It shows high mountain architecture, partially reduced on its architectural elements, which enables man to use the mountain in higher and higher regions. Massive interventions evoke an artificial world such as the huge glacier covers made of fleece and show the vast costs which are inversted to maintain the high mountain tourism and its motor, the myth of the alps.
